Thousands of people are holding events across Canada to raise awareness about the AIDS pandemic and raise funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which supports community-based oroganizations that are turning the tide of HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.  

There might be an event happening in your community!  Check out the calendar below to find a local craft sale, participate in a walkathon, attend a concert, or hear Stephen Lewis speak.

Harambee Calendar 2014


Lethbridge, Alberta

Date: October 01, 2014 to October 31, 2014

Harambee Grandmas will be distributing Donation Calendars to be used for the month of October. Our purpose is twofold: to provide education about conditions in Sub-Saharan Africa and the work of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and to raise funds to help the foundation.
People will post their calendars in place of their regular calendars. Each day gives a piece of information about Sub-Saharan Africa or the Stephen Lewis Foundation's work, and then suggests a donation. For example, on October 3rd, the calendar says," In Ethiopia, women and children may walk 6 or more kilometers for water every day. Pay 10 cents for each faucet in your home."
It is our hope that calendar users will develop a greater appreciation of how easy our lives in Canada are, compared to the grandmothers in Africa and that they will respond with compassion and friendship.
In addition to the calendar, we are offering three pages of experiential activities. We include suggestions for learning various African handshakes, having an African potluck dinner, drumming with a group of friends, walking for water, and appreciating a living family member, plus 10 other activities. This portion is not expected to garner donations, but simply to to foster cross-cultural appreciation. Members of our Grandmothers' group will each distribute four calendars (and optional Experiential Activity Sheets) to friends
